Re: 8 lug rims

I have always liked my rims. They remind me of Corvette rallys

Re: 8 lug rims

The ones in the avatar are American Racing. Make sure you spring for the stainless center caps, though.

I'll post a larger pic tonight.

Those are the ones I love.. But might just strip out my 69 I just purchased and sell the parts. I just found out it will cost me nearly $1000 just to transfer title and pay late fees etc.. I just purchased the truck for $600

Well, It looks like I have a problem with Vista and Photobucket not wanting to work together on this new laptop.

I've got a minivan out here that I have to pay a late fee on but it is only a hundred bucks but I only paid 35 for the car on ebay. It looks like they want all the fees all the way back on that one. If it is in good shape you might be better off to sell it to someone out of state and use the money to buy one with current tags.
